Some say that we should forget about the past and instead, focus on the present and the future. I disagree. I feel that although some of our history may not be pretty, but we still need it as a reminder to the young generation of the mistakes we made in the past. These mistakes should not be repeated by the young as it will only hold us back and prevents us from progressing.
Recently, I came across some suggestions in blogs that we should totally forget about May 13th. Again, I disagree. In fact, I feel that each and everyone of us must know May 13th by heart. The question is now, how do we do that? Most of the infos are either too general or too hard to find. Just look at Tunku Abd Rahman's book - May 13 : Before and After. It's become a rare item. Plus most of us are too busy to find time to read books. We'd rather read blogs.
So, I'd like to take this opportunity to urge all of you to read Jebat Must Die's take on May 13. I'm not asking you to believe it bluntly, just read and analyze and learn; and if you have the time, dig deeper. You can use the references he quoted in his posts. It's good stuff. Kudos to Bro JMD. Happy reading folks.
